That is interesting. usually they either work or don't work when you switch operating systems. color being off is usually a problem with the cartridges or print head itself.

does it print properly when you make a copy from the printer itself ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I tested copying and there was no yellow. I replaced the yellow cartridge with a brand new Canon yellow cartridge. It still prints yellow mixed with black yielding a paler black printing and printed yellow in place of red on one headline area.

see if you can find a nozzle test on the printers menu

it should be under maintenance or tools.

print that and let me know what it looks like

it should print squares or lines of each separate color and they should be solid and well defined.
